New Shawl

I made this for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted the brightest, most cheerful yarn I could find - this definitely qualifies on both counts - and a pattern that would wrap her in warmth but was also pretty and feminine. With the choice narrowed down to two, the pattern's name became the deciding factor - 'Angel Wings' was just too perfect.

This is 3 skeins (735 yds) of Crazy Monkey's 'HypnoMonkey' DK-weight yarn in 'Popsicle Drips'. I bought it 2 years ago because I loved the colors, but could never find the right project. Obviously, it knew what it wanted to be and was waiting for just the right time.
I made a couple of modifications to the pattern, including adding a row of solid double crochet at odd intervals and putting a ruffle along the bottom edge. (My project notes are here.)Sure hope my friend likes it and that it cheers her up over the coming months and reminds her how much she's loved.
